FANTASTIC ADVENTURE and a GREAT, COZY HOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5

I went on this solo adventure to Costa Rica to : 1) Learn to surf 2) Horseback ride on the beach 3) Soak in the sun 4) Eat great food 5) Read & relax and soak up more sun!

1) Surfing: Ben the owner of this terrific home is an excellent surf instructor. He is patient, kind and very informative. Ben taught me the basics with an emphasis on safety and reading the ocean. There is no "hour" lesson, Ben takes whatever time that you need for your lesson and I can vouch that he will work with you until you can barley move your arms or legs!!! It's about whatever you want from your lesson . His positive attitude and encouragement was refreshing and I can't wait to surf again.

2) Beb arranged for my horseback riding excursion. The wrangler he chose was on time, pleasant and once again "it was all about me", where I wanted to go, stopping for pictures, breaks, and letting me race down the beach. I couldn't stop smiling the entire ride! I invited Glenna, the caretaker, to join me. She helped me translate and added to my fun adventure with her kindness and friendship.

3) Soaking up the sun: The house is located a short walk to the beach. It is a very enjoyable walk, lots of monkeys, parrots and a very cool boardwalk thru the mangrove trees. I spent hours at the beach, running, walking and taking in the beautiful warm Pacific Ocean.

4) Great Food: Any direction you chose to walk there is an wonderful restaurant to dine in. Breakfast at Cabinas Los Olas turned into a almost daily ritual after my morning walk, Lola's for amazing ceviche and the best view! The Burrito Box is fresh and very good, Mauna Loa if you are craving killer tiramisu! All within a 5 minute walk..... Mauna Loa also has a very fun gift shop!

5) Rest and RELAX! : Ben and Glenna's priority is your happiness. They were perfect. Attentive while giving me my space to read, relax and soak in this beautiful country. Ben is avid about security and I was very comfortable being solo. He arranged for a private shuttle for me due to my late arrival and very early departure. Tamarindo Shuttle was on time, efficient and the drivers, pleasant . The vehicles were in excellent condition and comfortable. Due to Ben's attentiveness and concern I was able to completely enjoy myself. He is a long time resident of CR and willingly shared his knowledge. I had 6 hammocks to chose from to enjoy my books or a siesta. I CANNOT WAIT TO RETURN!!

The home is very comfortable. Every room has a

A private, cool and relaxing environment to vacation in

  • 5 of 5

Very close to the beach, a great place to cool off in the AC and watch Apple TV after a long day out in the surf or at the beach. Secured behind a locked gate at the entrance of the property I felt safe and comfortable throughout my entire stay. I enjoyed the comfortable king size beds and beautiful stone green bathrooms. Plenty of hammocks to nap in and mangoes to eat, from the trees on the property. Fast and reliable wifi. Located nearby to one of the best restaurants "Blu" a short walk down the street. I couldn't decide what was better and hearing the waves crash at night or watching the fireflies dance. Owner very helpful in recommendations for the area and responds quickly to questions and or concerns. With other guests staying in the house further back on the property I had the option to socialize or keep to myself. Playa avellanas is the best beach I've visited in Costa Rica the white sand and perfect waves easily made for my favorite spot to stay throughout my travels.

Simple, affordable, pleasant, close to surf, eats, surrounded by nature.

  • 4 of 5

Great trip! Ben was extremely helpful and welcoming to our family of five. The 3 suite combo worked out perfect for us. Plenty of space. 3 bathrooms, tv sun each room, ac, stocked kitchen. Kids loved the hammocks outside. Monkeys and iguanas galore. Short walk to beach through cabinas las olas. Boardwalk through old mangrove forest is a trip. Bring the camera. 20 minute walk to Lola's on the beach.

Couple tips: bring a flashlight for the front gate at night, earplugs for the howlers and the rains. Also just a heads up. No hot water. Nice to have, but not needed.

You won't find a more positive and helpful owner. Ben made reservations and travel super easy for us.

Good house for rent

  • 5 of 5

Very close to the access of Avellanas beach (by walk), which is very beautiful and good for surfing. The house is comfortable with a large space. More tools and gadgets in the kitchen would be interesting, but the house contains more items than the basic stuff. If you have a car you can easily access the center of Tamarindo, which has more restaurants and nightlife. Benny is a great guy and received me and my colleagues with enthusiasm. I strongly recommend the house.
